Where in Louisiana [with] Teacher Manual.
Gillan, Bob; Williams, Ross
The first part of this document is a report describing "Where in Louisiana," a program model using IBM LinkWay (i.e., a multimedia software package providing tools to merge text and graphics) that was created as a cooperative learning activity to enhance and expand state studies. The introductory report discusses ways the model promotes learning, capabilities of LinkWay, and suggested project organization; an address for ordering a free copy of the program on diskette is provided. The second part of the document is a supporting teacher manual which presents beginning LinkWay users with the background to initiate classroom activities or extend this model to other states and regions. Areas of cooperative learning addressed by the model are listed, including: (1) initiating computer literacy; (2) providing relevance to state and local studies; (3) incorporating link-knowledge through design and research activities; (4) and emphasizing cooperative learning through student/teacher and group activities. Instructions for specific LinkWay functions such as creating button icons, folders, and buttons are given; and sample screen displays are included. (ALF)
